The last proper day of the Holiday and the first PROPER internet access all week… how good it feels to have access on a fast, non spyware filled PC. Ah it fills me with so much confidence.
Firstly, the good news – we’ve had a fantastic week and have visited some amazing places including the Fort, Mosaics and the Tombs of the Kings at Paphos, Hamam baths in Nicosia (as well as a spooky border with Turkish Cyprus and the UN buffer zone), and a Mosque, Salt flats, the Church of St. Lazarus, and the Turkish fort at Larnaka.
The huge lizards running all over the Turkish Fort had to be seen to be believed… they were massive (about 12″ long). One running round with a dead chick in it’s mouth was enough for me…
The beach at Firemans Bay is brilliant – tiny, and the cove is only about 200m wide, but the sand is golden (if rather coarse), and the sea bottom is soft and easy to walk on… the sea is warm too!.
All in all a brilliant holiday.
Sadly, though, today was marred by the fact that I found out that our store at the church has been broken into and we have had approximately 1,200 pounds worth of tools stolen including a 36v Bosch Hammer drill, lots of Ryobi 18V kit, and a large tool chest containing lots of VDE tools and a couple of provers. Most of the tools are marked FIRELEC S63 7JY and many of them are micro dotted/marked with Smartwater and if you do see any, please advise local police and/or us!
